LOCKN’ is excited to announce new additions to the already fantastic fifth anniversary lineup, including Phil Lesh with special guest Bob Weir & The Terrapin Family Band performing the Grateful Dead classic from 1977 Terrapin Station in its entirety. This is the first time Lesh and Weir have played together since 2015’s Fare Thee Well concerts, other than a surprise set at Terrapin Crossroads in May 2016. Earlier this month, Weir also sat in with the Terrapin Family Band for another performance at Lesh’s venue. Other LOCKN’ artists announced this week include John Fogerty, The Disco Biscuits, Jim James, phil.moe. (Phil Lesh & Friends with moe.), Antibalas, Blackberry Smoke, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Hiss Golden Messenger, Moonalice, The Record Company and Sinkane. The three Rockn’ to LOCKN’ winners will be added to the schedule in June following the contest finals.

“Having Bobby and Phil perform Terrapin Station together is one of those moments that we created LOCKN’ for,” LOCKN’ co-founder Peter Shapiro told Rolling Stone. “I’m hoping it’s a musical experience that Deadheads will be able to lose themselves into and then live on as a live recording that will create lasting magic for a long time after.”

LOCKN’ has also released the daily lineup for what is going to be a magical weekend August 24 – 27 at the newly named Infinity Downs Farm. The complete daily lineup is below. Formally known as Nelson County Preserve, Infinity Downs Farm is a 387-acre property located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Arrington, VA. The former 225-year-old tobacco farm was purchased in 2014 by the owners of LOCKN’ Festival, and has already established a scalable and versatile venue featuring the Blue Ridge Bowl amphitheater, Garcia’s Forest performance area in the woods, and plenty of open fields for parking, camping, and other outdoor accommodations. In addition, miles of hiking and bike trails have been curated to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. Infinity Downs Farm can be found at www.infinitydowns.com, on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
